Hello Everyone

I have a problem with my laptop, every time i try and accsess a search engine ( like google ) i am being diverted to onother address that is not google. in fact this happens no matter wich search engine i try to use.
I found a page that ask me to remove a file called hosts in windows directory. I have done that and the problem presists.
does anyone know how to solve this ?

You probably have the QHosts virus - you also need to remove the virus.

Update your AV and it should remove it. Or get AVG 6 Free Edition click here

Also update your system with this patch click here

Then goto Windows Update and get all the Critcal Updates.
